IN THIS SUMMARY

Although human capital is potentially the most powerful source of competitive advantage, in today’s global business environment, it is becoming increasingly difficult to design organizations that can turn talent into productivity. Lawler’s premise is that it is not enough for leaders to just say people are important, they must also design and manage “human-capital-centric” (HC-centric) organizations—organizations that optimize the attraction, retention, and performance of talent.

Talent, the follow-up to Edward Lawler’s bestselling Built to Change, synthesizes theory, research, and practice to show how organizations can combine the right organizational design, management practices, and talent to gain a critical performance edge.
